Zdeno Chara will most likely not be available for games this week against Los Angeles, Ottawa, and Philadelphia because of a leg injury, according to a source.

If his recovery goes well, Chara might be ready for the Bruins’ home game against Montreal Dec. 19. Or the Bruins could opt to keep Chara out of uniform until after Christmas to give his injury more time to heal. The Bruins play at Phoenix Dec. 28.

Chara was injured during a power play in the second period of Saturday night’s 5-3 win over Columbus at Nationwide Arena. Chara went to the dressing room without assistance. After the game, Chara was walking without noticeable discomfort.

Steven Kampfer, who hasn’t played since Nov. 17, will dress against the Kings Tuesday.
